Jaguars best 5 options with the number 2 overall pick
With a record of 1-11, the Jaguars are holding tight onto the number two overall draft pick. But with four games left on the season, they still have a chance to fight (or lack thereof) for the number one overall pick, which currently belongs to the New York Jets.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence would easily be number on this list but he’s guaranteed to go number one. If the Jaguars somehow land the number one spot, their selection is easily Lawrence.
But in this case, we will consider them drafting at number two with Lawrence already off of the board.
C.J. Henderson, Tre Herndon, and Sidney Jones IV have all contributed well at corner this season. But the Jaguars still don’t have their Jalen Ramsey replacement. The competition will be hot this next season for the cornerback position in Jacksonville and adding a player like Patrick Surtain II will put a twist on it.
Surtain II is regarded as the best cornerback prospect in this draft by most analysts and has often been slated to be drafted as high as pick number five to the Dallas Cowboys.
Surtain II is incredibly athletic with a strong physical skill set. He’s able to stay in stride with the opposing wide receiver and track the ball over his shoulder. The only concern with Surtain II seems to be with his coverage skills in the deep ends of the field, where he can often let the receiver get a step on him, forcing him to use his hands rather than his size to disrupt the catching process.
